Our Hong Kong Foundation
Our Hong Kong Foundation (OHKF) is a non-government, non-profit organisation founded in November 2014 by Mr. Tung Chee-hwa, former Vice Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and former Chief Executive of Hong Kong SAR. OHKF aims to contribute to Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability as well as its sustainable development under the “One Country, Two Systems” principle. The Foundation has three member organisations: the Public Policy Institute that focuses on public policy research, advocacy, and engagement as a think tank; the Academy of Chinese Studies that promotes traditional Chinese culture and tells the stories of China today, and Hong Kong Chronicles Institute that produces a book series about Hong Kong's development over time for preserving history and educating the people.
The Public Policy Institute
The Public Policy Institute picks the brains of Hong Kong’s top talents, taps the insight of the academia, and pools the expertise of the public sector to contribute policy ideas as a think tank covering a full range of areas including land and housing, economic development, innovation and technology, arts and culture, healthcare, youth, and education. Through mainstream media and social media as well as online and offline platforms, the Institute presents its research findings and promotes its policy ideas to key stakeholders and the general public.
The Academy of Chinese Studies
The Academy of Chinese Studies promotes traditional Chinese culture and tells the stories of China today. Through innovative means, rich contents, and multiple perspectives, the Academy parades the glittering culture of the traditional China, presents the great rejuvenation of modern China, and probes the opportunities for the future of China in an age of tectonic changes. Rooted in Hong Kong with a global outlook, the Academy aims to foster the national identity of the younger generations in Hong Kong so that they know the past and connect it with the present to conquer the future. The Academy helps the world hear what China says, see how it grows, and understand what it aspires.
The Hong Kong Chronicles Institute
Hong Kong Chronicles Institute inherits the time-honoured Chinese tradition of compiling local chronicles by taking up the historic mission of producing the first-ever Hong Kong Chronicles. The book series serves as a comprehensive, systematic and objective record of Hong Kong’s past, detailing its natural environment, politics, economy, society, culture and people. In recording Hong Kong’s progress over time, Hong Kong Chronicles serves the important functions of preserving history, shedding light on policymaking, and educating the people. The first round of the project commenced in 2019 for completion by 2027.
